It did, but only as a 4 byte long, with 1 sec precision. I check until
6.3 back. DATETIME was preferred back then due to a higher resolution,
being 8 bytes.

Starting with Postgres 7 DATETIME seems to have been abandoned in favor
of TIMESTAMP which is now 8 bytes with a 1 microsec resolution and valid
timespan/lifetime past a couple future ice ages (AD1465001).

Time stamp with time zone, while 1 usec precision last only until 2037,
as pretty much the rest of the known Unix universe :)

Hope this helps,
